Ubuntu is a preferred desktop OS, that uses the Linux kernel, but its server release is getting really popular as well. The reason is the fact that the OS is very light and it can function on almost any kind of hardware with no issues, utilizing its resources to the maximum. Ubuntu is also extremely reliable and secure and all the Long-Term Support (LTS) versions are supported for a minimum of five years, which guarantees that you should have a risk-free and stable software environment on your server all the time. In addition, Ubuntu has one of the largest user communities on the planet, which means that if you experience any issue or have any kind of question, you will discover a number of resources on the net. One of the key benefits of this OS is that it comes with thousands of software packages that can be freely adjusted in accordance with your needs and the requirements of the applications that you would like to run, not to mention that you won't have to pay any license fees at all. In contrast, other OS's are paid and their program code isn't accessible, which means that it cannot be changed.

Ubuntu in VPS Servers

With all of our VPS plans, you're able to select the Ubuntu OS on the order page. We are aware of the fact that some pieces of software have specific requirements in terms of the Operating System they can be installed on, which means that you will be able to select from the 32-bit and the 64-bit release of Ubuntu. In addition, you can select whether the VPS should feature the Hepsia Control Panel or with no Control Panel at all. In the first case, you will receive everything you'll need pre-installed - MySQL, electronic mail server, FTP, etc. software, and you can make everything through your web browser, but the root access will be restricted; whereas in the second case, you'll receive Ubuntu as well as the Apache server software only, so that you can install anything freely because of the full root access which you will be given, however the server management tasks are performed using a console. Our sysadmins will monitor your VPS and upgrade the Ubuntu setup on a weekly basis when you add the additional Managed Services package that we offer.

Ubuntu in Dedicated Servers

Ubuntu is among the Operating System options that you will find on our registration page if you decide to acquire one of our dedicated web hosting plans. We can set up the 32-bit or the 64-bit edition, so as to satisfy the system requirements of the applications that you need to install on the server. You may also choose the software which will operate on your machine, since we will set up only the Apache web server software, so everything else can be custom-made software of your liking. You can install the latter without problems through a Secure Shell console, as you will receive root-level access and you will have full control of your server. You are free to install a hosting Control Panel too and manage some things through a graphical interface, as long as it can work on an Ubuntu-driven machine. To make things simpler, we also supply a Managed Services upgrade, that, among other things, contains Operating System upgrades.
